the answers are. i'm joined by democratic strategist bob shrum and salon's joan walsh. first, however, we have two new national polls on the presidential race. let's check the "hardball" scoreboard. according to a new "washington post"/abc news poll, president obama has a two-point lead holding there, 49%/47%. same score in the new politico poll. obama by two, 49%/47%. "the new york times" this weekend reported on the two campaigns' ongoing debate preps. here is what they said about romney's prep. quote, mr. romney's team has concluded that the debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers he's memorized and has been practicing on aides since august. bob shrum, you have been on that particular role, preparing candidates for debate. what do you make of romney, a rather stiff customer to begin with, coming off as sort of a henny youngman or whatever, some sort of a don rickles with some zingers. i don't think of him as a zinger kind of guy where obama is expected to be left helpless. what do you make of that strategy? >> first of all, if you had it, you wouldn'
stone is a romney doubter. bob costa, let me begin with you, buddy. president obama before this night is over is going to call him bush, he's going to talk about the 47%, he's going to talk about bain capital. it could get ugly. will mitt romney hold his cool and keep his temper in check? >> well, larry, i've been hanging out with romney world all day. romney's goal is two-fold. heap needs to be aggressive on policy but stay presidential and be likable. >> if mitt military comes out aggressive and i hope he does, i want him to take charge of this debate from the get-go, will he do it -- will he still be the gentleman mitt or are we going to see something that we haven't seen before that was cooked up by all the brilliant guys in his campaign is. >> he wants to be gentleman mitt to an extent. he does not want to get bogged down on distractions. if obama starts to bring up bain capital and tax returns, romney wants to stay on the big themes of the economy. >> supposed obama comes after romney on bain capital, romney is going to counter and say you know, what sir week do build our own bu
? >> these broad stroke indictments of the last four years -- >> bob, it's something truly serious tonight, it could get ugly. we're hearing all this stuff leaking from the romney camp how he's going to hit him on dishonesty. i don't know how somebody stands on a platform and let them go across with broadsides about integrity being dishonesty. how does he deal with it, if it comes? >> he just answers it honestly. he's come a long way since that debate where he told hillary clinton she was nice enough. he'll be very contained, very self-controlled and i suspect very presidential. my guess is that's part of the whole preparation process the president's gone through. he's not going to let mitt romney get under his skin because he's very conscience of the fact that that would represent a victory for romney. that would become the story of the debate, much as al gore's size became the story of the 2000 debate. >> the bridge of size. thank you. thank you very much. as we go to break, new poll numbers from our nbc news/wall street journal poll. in florida president obama has a one-point lead over
, their story coming up. >> gretchen: where was the president's head in this debate. bob woodward also has a theory kind of like al gore, dick morris is here to react. >> a lot of people played drinking games in the debate. they took a shot when someone said a certain word. word for obama was jobs and romney was medicare . jim lehrer was but -- but. he got confused. >> steve: poor guy. >> brian: 78. ♪ ♪ [ clock ticking ] [ male announcer ] there's a better way... v8 v-fusion. vegetable nutrition they need, fruit taste they love. could've had a v8... ♪ >> brian: hey, glad you are up. why was president obama so off of his game in the debate. journalist bob woodword had a theory on shared on the radio on kilmeade and friends. >> something happened intelligence report, who knows the things that can happen in a president's life that distract him. he was distracted. it was not an engaged obama. i think as the onion gets peeled on this. we'll find that something happened in his presidential or personal life that distracted him. >> brian: could personal problems be the reason and blame why t
with bob twittering. >> no, no. tweet, whatever. the second thing to say is it wasn't so much the right, and there were people on the romney side trying to push it. it was the left. it was the left that went crazy on obama! they wanted a grudge match, a cage match. they wanted -- >> that's why even the obama campaign thinks they lost. >> yeah, that's the problem. >> when they come out tend with the spinners, it was all romney people. >> who knew that preparation with joy bearrest would have been a bad idea? spending all that time on the couch. obama had such a rough night that sandra fluke called him to see if he was doing okay. i thought that was pretty touching. i actually felt -- it's the worst possible feeling that you could have is to feel sorry for somebody and i felt like i was watching the washington generals playing the harlem globetrotters. that's a basketball reference. i wanted to make sure you knew that. but i bet at this point, romney's garbage man is voting for him. obama to me, he remained me of homer simpson rolling down the mountain and continually, no matter what he d
, bob dole, they were not debaters. the republicans finally have someone on the state that could take it to a democratic challenger. >> colby? >> the prospect of hanging focuses the mind. did run the credit for this. he is a fighter. he came out of south carolina behind. he pulled together, took on new toingrich, and inhe same thing to him as a bid to obama. he was well prepared. he was confident. he showed that he could go toe to toe with the president, looking in the eye, and not be condescending or patronizing. in town with obama the whether obama should have dealt with him. it was one of the mono and obama fell short. >> the result is historical unique. in the 50 years of presidential debates, and nothing there has ever been a debate where there was such a decisive win in an absence of gaff. if you have something like four with eastern europe, or others along the way, it is decisive. it is usually a muddled outcome, or just one bad moment, like i knew jack kennedy. there was not a sound bite in this. one other point, the moderator. i know jim lehrer has taken a lot of abuse becau
how many years. george w. bush, john mccain, and bob dole, they could not debate. republicans finally have someone on stage that could take it to the democrats. >> focusing the mind. >> it is the prospect of hanging that focuses the mind. >> either way, you are dead. >> give romney credit for this. he is a fighter. he came out and was behind in south carolina. he pulled together in florida. he took on newt gingrich. he did the same thing to him what he did to obama. he was well prepared. he was confident. he showed that he could go toe to toe with the president, looking in the eye, and not be condescending or patronizing. he dealt with obama the way that obama should i dealt with him. >> in the 50 years of presidential debates, i do not think there has been a debate in which there was such a decisive win in the absence of a gaffe. if you have one like the one with ford in eastern europe, others along the way, it is decisive. it is usually a muddled outcome, or one of the bad moments, like, i knew jack kennedy, you're no jack kennedy. but there was no sound bite in this. one other poin
: straight ahead on this thursday, last week bob massi helped hundreds of our viewers in florida struggling with their mortgages and he's not done yet. he's coming up next. >> gretchen: then hey, watch where you're going. what in the world was this guy thinking hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. >> brian: bob massi went to treasure island, florida to help americans hit by the foreclosure crisis directly. today bob is back to help you and address some of the feedback he received. welcome back. how did it go? >> thanks, brian. it was great. the people really were wonderful. had a great turnout. everybody was so cooperative. people love fox news. they love "fox & friends" and what we're trying to do, so overall, a lot of good information, lot of great questions and it was good. i could not thank you guys enough for allowing me to do it and i thank the people for treasure island how gracious they w
. step back. it's much better for democracy really. >> here's a problem and i think bob schieffer who's going to moderate this third debate with the same format is going to have to think about this. there are moments where you can say -- le let ee says to mitt romney, you've said again and again you'll eliminate the deductions and loopholes. give us one or two examples. >> i agree with you. i wish he had done that. on the one hand he had a different philosophy. what was the result? you said it earlier. a pretty substantial debate. i want to discuss yo. jim lehrer has been doing this for a lock, long time hchl e has a stellar reputation for fairness. what are the costs compared him to an nfl ref and things like that? >> i don't know. except that as long as done -- when you're in the limelight and you're in it for a long time, your head is above the trep. and you're going to be shot at. i don't think it's any more than that. >> i think it was a lot of democratic scapegoating. you heard from the democrs. he did a terrible job. >> you heard him saying, well, guess mitt romney was the mode
. bob schieffer of cbs news as well as candy crowley. there are stories in the paper looking at what the candidates seem to do -- aim to do. lawrence is joining us from michigan on the democratic line. will you be watching tomorrow night? are you with us? let's go on to bill in edgewater, florida, independent. caller: good morning. i will definitely be watching. i was brought up in the republican household. but i have been paying attention to the debates and seeing a lot of shows on what the issues aren't. -- are. i don't have the confidence after the republican convention that they have a plan, because they have been avoiding giving any specifics. so i really want to hear if republicans really have something to say. other than that, i really moved to an independent position. i am willing to vote for somebody who comes up with a good plan. host: what will you listen for in particular tomorrow night, bill? the economy, health care, what issues are important to you? caller: i thinik i want more honesty from the republicans instead of evasiveness. i feel they have been dodging questions
pledge so many republicans made. and bob lutz a former top auto executive. the auto bailout expected to be a big topic tonight. and we've got president of the aflcio. unions of course a major constituency. and roger altman. as you can see the lineup card is full. going to be great. >> absolutely. meantime our chief washington correspondent john harwood has made the trip to denver. what are you watching first tonight? >> what i'm watching for is how mitt romney takes advantage of this huge opportunity that he's got with tens of millions of americans watching these two side by side. he's behind in the polls, but not by an overwhelming margin. three points in our nbc/wall street journal poll. i talked to devine who was the campaign strategist for al gore. when gore lost the election, in the debates he said here's what's mitt romney's got to do. he's got to figure a line of attack that at the same time makes president obama looks bad, makes him look good, and press that through the entire 90 minutes. it's an economy debate. that is supposed to be mitt romney's wheel house. we'll see if h
people the way i did. and she won't get to ask her own questions. however, jim lehrer and bob schieffer are going to be able to go head to head with each of the candidates and ask their questions, so i'm upset that women seem to be marginalized. >> great to have you on. thank you. >> i'm so excited. thank you, thomas. >>> he knows the job. he's been doing it for quite some time. he's a very good debater, so i do they will him to have fun and relax and just be himself. if he's the barack obama the country has come to know and trust, he's going to do a great job. >> i tell him that you know what, sweetie? you had five boys. you learned to argue really well and make your points years ago. >> michelle obama and ann romney with advice for their husbands. the first lady will campaign for her husband this afternoon in nevada. meantime, ann romney campaigned in the state yesterday where she tried to appeal to women voters. that as our battleground state polling shows today that president obama has lost support. just three points down from 12 last month. however, the president still holds formid
perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. home of the brave. ♪ ♪ it's where fear goes unwelcomed... ♪ ♪ and certain men... find a way to rise above. this is the land of giants. ♪ ♪ guts. glory. ram. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] if you didn't notice, this week fox news and a lot of visit websites went crazy over the exclusive video clip they have ofof president obama that they found. except it wasn't exclusive and they ran it back in 2004 when he said it, and they ran it the last campaign, but they are what they are and they do it for a reason. the whole idea is oh, my god the president is an angry black man. look at what he says in this video. >> what is happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your money? it tells me that some how the people down in new orleans they don't care about it as much. >> cenk: they literally called him an angry black man on that, and then during the debate i started getting tweets from you guys, the viewers and others who began to say the same thing. wait a minute, is there some chance that pres
-year lec elections, he sat down with bob dole and newt gingrich and they reform welfare and put themselves on a path to a balanced budget. the same way that ronald reagan did with tip o'neill. they sat down and they negotiated. this president doesn't do that. and that's, in my view, something that has caused huge frustration amongst the american people. why last night he said, well... the reason why we don't go across the aisle is because have you to say no sometimes? is that the basis of it? i don't think so. >> greta: you know i thought as a counterpart to that is that the most effective moment for governor romney eye thought so -- is when he pointed out he was a republican governor with a very democratic state and that oftentimes, he had to reach across. you know, i live and breathe in this town where there is so much condisplikt log jam that that caught my attention. >> mine, too and stark contrast to what the president had to say. that's what was really interesting. there is no doubt... with 87% of his legislature being democrat, there is no doubt that mitt had to sit down with them a
is not on solid ground making the claim. gerri: one possible explanation. bob woodward said, wow, you know what might have happened? the president got bad foreign affairs information before the debate. doug, are you buying that? >> not at all. presidents compartmentalize, the correspondent's dinner, the president told joke and the next day, a successful raid on bin laden. gerri: no excuses? >> no excuses. gerri: thank you so much. great job as always. >> thank you. >> thanks, gerri. gerri: last night's debate was conversational more than expected and there were zingers, our top picks of the best. number five -- >> obamacare is on the list. i use that term with all respect. >> i like it. >> okay, good. gerri: we're fond of that too, but not for the same reason as you. number four -- >> i'll stop the subsidy to pbs. i like big bird. gerri: making big bird a star with saturday night live, jimmy fallon, all trying to book the star. his people saying he's not talking to the media. we were turned down by big bird. it's appalling. number three -- >> and at some point, i think the american people have
about an hour and a half ago what the various candidates need to do tonight? bob in missouri, the show me state wrote this, keep it simple, mitt. romney must deliver a consistents yet simple message on our economy without getting too deep into numbers and class labels. so will he follow bob's advice? >> martha: maureen in maine, romney must back the president up against a wall, she says, and not move until he actually answers the question. she's going for a much more adepressive mode. we'll see. >> brian: that's something jim lehre has to do. he's getting upset because people are saying there is -- the moderator should be more diverse. everybody on the panel that's been chosen, from martha readydich. >> steve: meanwhile, the big question is tonight, the topic will be domestic issues. will jim lehrer ask mitt romney about the 47% comment that was caught on cell phone camera? probably. the smart money is that that question will be asked. >> brian: definitely. >> steve: however, will he ask about some video that came to light last night? it was first broadcast last night on the hannity pr
what you have to say. bob is in new york city on the democratic line. caller: i have two questions for the candidates. why, in this day and age, are women's reproductive rights even being called up? are they aware that in this century, at this late date -- why are we going back and rehashing this? an issue that has been dealt with and should not even be on the table? also, i would want to know possibly, and i will vote for the president, and from him i would want to know why -- i thought that his calling when he came to office was to get on top of wall street, get on top of that problem with the big banks, with all the crazy financing that even some of the experts cannot understand. again, i will vote for him, maybe he will do this in the next term, deal with the big banks and the issues surrounding why they have not been regulated or clamped down on in a meaningful way so that we can go forward. if we are going to talk about certainty, we need to know that the banks will not be falling back into the abyss that they got us into before. host: richard, republican line, hello. caller:
they won't let things slip away again. bob lockwood is communications director for the north carolina g.o.p. >> comparatively from where we were in 2008 to where we are now we've made 20 times the amount of phone calls, more than 100 times the amount of door knocks. over two million voter contacts more than we did in all of 2008 in north carolina. we're doing a great job getting our message out >> brown: one final wild card here the role that social issues might play. in may north carolina voters overwhelming passed a ban on same sex marriage. the very next day president obama announced that he supports gay marriage. sunday morning services at white rock baptist church in durham, tonya who voted for barack obama in 2008 told us the issue has ber politically torn >> it's a direct contradiction to what god says about that. i was just... you know, it conflicts with my christian beliefs. >> brown: this man while deeply opposed to gay marriage said his concerns about voting again for the president were dispelled in recent days >> they are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no
that he is in the party of daryl isa, rush limbaugh. >> bob mcdone nold. >> todd akin. you have all these guys wearing the republican brand and mitt romney is associated with them. >> joy, republicans are having a hard time appealing to women voters because they don't like their outreach or because women don't like their policies. which of those is it? >> the problem is there really hasn't been any outreach. what's been stunning about the romney campaign is the extent to which they have decided not to really try to reach out to these groups they're doing poorly with on the basis of issues. mitt romney has had several opportunities to stand up and sort of lead his party and say, you know what? todd akin, you're wrong. that's not what our party stands for. >> calling sandra fluke a slut. you're wrong. >> stand up to rush limbaugh, we're not going to talk about women in a party i'm the leader of. he's so weak in terms of standing up to the loud and extreme voices he hasn't given himself an opportunity. all he's doing a dangling his wife out there and saying, hey, she's a woman, she lik

, your thoughts. processing answers, like bob bowl when he says that bill is a markup. >> exactly. i can get this out of conference. we can go forward. i think that a lot of the discourse in politics and in debates can be about process, about who's got a plan or why you've done a certain thing. often one candidate will try to accuse another. the think the winner is the one who sticks to, what do the american people care about? how to specific the economy and don't get bogged down in the process. it's easy to flip. >> do you think it's a problem -- you talk about being optimistic. these guys are used to throwing red meat out, getting nurtured. the rules are -- there is no noise, no reaction. so you throw out what you think is the line of the sencentury. do you think that's going to -- >> if somebody is optimistic, it's going to play in the hall fun. but it will play better on tv. ronald reagan and bill clinton. say your opponent's record is bad and still be optimistic about america and i think both of these guys forget to think that the president's a little better on it. romney is an opti
